Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Now this was one hell of a hot and very sexy book. I wished getting a job was as fun as this one seems to be. Grant finally has a job but it requires him to know how to use a gun. The problem is he has never shot a gun before in his life. So when he comes up with a plan, he goes all in. He just wasn’t expecting the gorgeous man from the block party to be the one to teach him. It would seem that Eric has a lot to show him.

This was one fun book to ride. Derek always gives you sexy men in hot situations. I loved this story just as much as I loved the last ones that I have read by Derek. It gives you plenty of what you would want, although I wished it was longer in length with more juicy parts to it. I had a blast reading it though.

I would recommend reading it. The sex is hot, sensual and downright yummy.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Well written story about a half angel, Julian and a half demon, Patrick who feel in love 23 years ago and were prevented from boding by the Angel Council. Both had their powers bound and Julian had his memories suppressed. It was a wonderful yet hilarious reading how Angel acted toward Patrick and vice versa.

Loved how the story progressed and we find out everything that happened and why. Fantastic story and details. Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is the first book that I have read by Piper and I have to admit I was fascinated by it. Although to be perfect I would have rather it not only been longer but with a bit more to the story. It gives you two men meeting, one with a little bit of angst and trouble following him, one who has an attitude, danger but it was missing that zing for me.

Chi has left his pack, not wanting to be with the alpha as a mate. He is left with not much but knows that if he doesn’t find work soon then he is majorly screwed. If he has to go home then he will either be forced to mate or be killed. He is a shape-shifter without a pack now. Gage is one of the owners of the club that Chi needs to work at. He takes one look at the sexy man and knows he has to have him. What he doesn’t expect is that shape shifters do in fact exist and it might cost him his life.

Like I said before I do like this story, however there are parts of it that had me wanting to throw the book down. They both come off as pompous asses that have sex and then there is nothing showing me that it will be more until a few more pages. It would have been better without Chi having gotten pleasure from someone else after he slept with Gage. It just wasn’t to par for me to truly love. It has a chance at being an excellent story but right now it comes off as a newbie story.

Blurb: Out of the Cage: Pause…a temporary stop or rest, a cessation of activity because of doubt or uncertainty.

Derek Sommers is fleeing a bad situation, made worse by foolish decisions from years before. He’d given into his father’s demands once and it had cost him a relationship with his brother, Deke. When Derek’s father demands he marry a certain woman, Derek has had enough. He decides to find out if Deke’s partner was telling the truth and travels to Stone Ridge in hopes of repairing ties with his brother. Except, even from states away, Derek’s father doesn’t want to let him go.

Dillan Shoreman travels to Stone Ridge to visit his godson, Edwin. When he nearly takes out a man jay-walking, he discovers the battered human is his mate. Having been alone a long time, Dillan thanks Fate’s oddly timed blessing. Unfortunately, he discovers that convincing his mate they have a future together will be harder than he thinks. Between a manipulative father, a guilt-tripping mother, and a conniving wannabe bride, Dillan’s mate already has plenty on his mind.

Can Dillan convince Derek that he can give him the peace, healing, and strength that his heart so desperately needs?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in Wolves of Stone Ridge collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way Charlie Richards can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Charlie.

There is something about the way that Charlie tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story.

This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break.

Derek felt like a coward. When his brother Deke came out he did nothing to support him. Now look where it gets him. Set up to a woman who is manipulative and just down right evil. So when his mother congratulated him on his engagement he knew it was time to stand up for himself. He had been trying to be the perfect son but it had gotten him nothing but abuse.

So the idea is to find his brother and try to make things right. He hadn’t counted on it almost getting him ran over by a motorcycle when he walked out in front of it. Nor had he counted on the sexy man riding it. Dillan was downright hot and sexy.

Dillan was a puma shifter and wanted to check on his godson. He had not expected to almost run his mate over. He was quite surprised at the sexy little man and looked forward to loving him totally. Now all he had to do is to keep him safe from his homophobic asshat father and mother. That and show the stupid woman who the man belonged to. Now when these two get together it gets even hotter.

When Charlie puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a lot of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Review: This was an exciting book that intrigued me. It was missing something for me to truly love but that didn’t stop me. I started reading and could not put the book down. I only had one little doubt about the story and then it gave me everything I could want for a happy ending. At first I wasn’t so sure about what to think of it, and then I realized where the characters were coming from.

Will is finally heading to college. He has the best parents in my eyes. They support him in everything he does. So when he meets Jeremy he wasn’t too sure if he was gay or not. However things start heating up for them both. Then Jeremy drops the bomb on their relationship and his heart is about to explode.

Jeremy has always loved men but he knows with his family that he is destined to marry a girl they chose. However Will is always on his mind and he wants him. He needs to stand up and make a decision or chance losing a man he has come to love.
This was a blast to read and I look forward to reading more by this amazing author. Derek has a gift at giving you a story that will draw you in and have you captivated till the end.

I would recommend reading this story.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This was such a blast to read. It is short, cute, sexy and hot all rolled up into one dynamic story. It gave me almost all that I could want in a story. I wished that it was longer with a bit more story to it. It just moved too fast for me to fall in love with though.

Tom had the best uncle in the world. When he had been killed in an accident, he had left Tom his entire house. So after a long time at work, he had decided to take a bit of vacation. What he finds is a huge ranch and a gorgeous man in charge. He was turned the hell on and it would seem that Nate felt the same way.

It has a serious tone to it but more humor in it than I expected. I loved the way the characters just mix so well. Although for me I would have loved to hear more about their future and have a little bit of trouble in it other than work.

I would recommend reading this book. It will give you a lift up on a day of hard work. You will soon find yourself in love with two gorgeous men.

I had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break.

I am never let down when I get my hands on one of these books, in fact I become a stalker just sitting there waiting for one of Stephani’s books to come out. She is probably one of my top five favorite authors. She has such a unique way of telling a story.

Alec’s past was a bit bizarre. They were lazy and just plain crazy. His own alpha put up fake security signs, like that would keep the bad guys away. In fact it didn’t stop the traders from coming and tearing his pack apart. Many of them were killed, but some like Alec and his brother were captured to be sold.

Thank god for Chris’s pack saving their asses. However since Alec has a smart ass remark about everything, Chris brought in a head doctor to talk to him. It didn’t hurt that the man was sexy as hell.
Michi took one look at Alec and knew that he would not be able to be just the doctor. He has finally found someone who turned him the hell on.

When they went to look over Alec’s pack home, it was as bad on the outside as it was on the inside. Bodies everywhere and Michi knew that he would keep his man safe. Now all he has to do is to figure him out. Cause the man is bound to drive him to the loony bin. But he sure was hot and sexy. The sex is out of this world and shooting sparks.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the others in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Stephani puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a lot of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

Raziel has watched each of his guardian brothers find their mate knowing that while Toby is his own, the time for them to meet hasn’t been right. When that time finally arrives and Raziel has Toby wrapped in his arms, he can’t shake the feeling that their time together will be fleeting.

Nothing in Toby’s life has been by his own choice since the moment Denzel ripped him from his mother’s womb. Now that Denzel is dead and Eydan is in charge, nothing has changed. All he has ever wanted has been to find his mate and have a place to call home, but fate has set his path in a different direction.

Visions have shown Toby what he must do to stop the war, but they have also revealed a truth that he has kept from everyone, especially his mate. He wants to be held, to experience the touch of his mate’s skin and the softness of his lips just once before giving in to his destiny.

While Toby is the only person who can end the Shadowkin plague that threatens Preter, to do so, he must sacrifice it all…

Reviewer: Tams

Review: The 11th and final book in the book worlds cult phenomenon, Preternatural Rescue Centre series, and what a fitting end.

Toby has known his fate for a while now. The only thing that gives him hope and keeps him alive is his psychic connection with his mate, the Guardian and Angel, Raziel. Through their bond and connection they can feel each other, but Toby longs for just one touch, one kiss a real kiss before he accepts his fate. Raziel also longs to make a real connection in addition to their mental one and he runs himself almost ragged searching for Toby’s location.

It would seem that luck is on their side when they finally secure Toby’s location and send a team after him. If we’ve learned anything on this journey with the Guardians of Preter and their mates, it’s that things are rarely as they seem.

I read the first book in this series a little over a year ago and I was instantly drawn into the world of the Guardians that guard the town of Preter that sits on the veil. While the Guardians protect humans and the supernatural worlds from the evil Shadowkin, they were also slowly but surely finding their mates. Each installment of the series was another Guardians story and each of those stories was leading up to this final book where everything comes to a head.

Raziel is the Angel aspect of the Guardian team and he has known Toby was his mate for a while. But Toby was taken at birth by the evil Warlock that controls the Shadowkin, Denzel. As the story progresses toward the final battle you learn that there are many facets to Toby, his personality and his abilities. Raziel as well has a secret he’s kept closely guarded which begs the question, if they defeat the Shadowkin, will they lose Toby and Raziel in the aftermath?

I love how all the stories and characters connect from one book to the next. Cross really showcased her writing skills with intricate and detailed storylines that started in Delta Blues and wove through all eleven books, to finally reach its boiling point here. The world building alone is phenomenal and while I had a few issues along the way, I never, not once got confused with characters or saw any discrepancies when carrying over characters from the beginning to the end of this series.

The world Cross created, the characters she breathed life into and the continually storyline that was the spine of the series with the Shadowkin, Preter and the coming storm truly make this a must read series.

I’m very sad to see this series come to a close, but it was such a wild ride with these guys that I have to recommend this series. If you are a fan of Shifters, paranormal romance, mystery, suspense, intrigue and just an overall fun experience with a saga of books, then you have to read these!

Note: Start at the beginning, this is a series that must be read in order.

Blurb: Micah can be an ass, he admits it. But most of the time when he says something stupid, it’s a backfired attempt at teasing. Micah never pictured himself settling down, there were too many men and women out there to keep him busy hoping from one bed to another. There’s only been one man who got under his skin. His brother’s best friend. However, a series of misunderstandings and arguments and years of resentment aren’t easy to overcome.

Rylan’s mother dumped him on the pack’s doorstep when he was a pup after finding out her husband wasn’t quite human. It left Rylan with a chip on his shoulder and a need to prove himself. Micah can’t help but bite back when Rylan pokes at him, but always assumed that most of the animosity between them was relatively harmless and shrugged it off as just not getting along.

Since being cornered by his little brother and warned to play nice, Micah decides that maybe the past is better left where it is. Only before he can come to terms with his own mistakes and apologize, Rylan is kidnapped and no one knows where to look.

Micah searches until he is ready to collapse from exhaustion. He even challenges his alpha. The pack and coven desperately search for Rylan, but when they finally find Rylan after six weeks, it may be too late to save him.

Trevor’s devious mind and scheming nature isn’t going to be easily outwitted.

The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story.

Micah and Rylan have been at odds since they were teenagers. However if you look deep inside of him, you will see that every time he says something it backfires on him. When he had first started when his feelings for Rylan was when he was in his twenties. Rylan had asked him out and he turned him down. He was too old for Rylan and knew that he needed to mature.

Then when Rylan turned nineteen and ready, Micah had been pretty much wasted. He had said some nasty stuff to him, which he regretted even now. However when Rylan is abducted and missing for over six weeks, Micah is lost. He is angry and there is something back there that is trying to let it be known.

Rylan had always known that Micah was his mate. He tried to let Micah know, but it had always ended up with him getting hurt. Even now he smells the woman who Micah had been with. He had not expected to be kidnapped, beaten and tortured. They had done many things to him, even branding him and there was something in him that needed out.

However he feared shifting, because the ass had skinned him. It wasn’t till he was rescued that the others knew something had been done to him that even he had not expected. Now he was the one that was the danger. The pack had to come up with a way to keep them all safe and get Rylan back.

There is something about this story that makes the rest just perfect. Here they spent their time fighting what was meant to be. Even though Micah had not known they were mates, he felt something for Rylan. It wasn’t till Rylan was taken that he was willing to acknowledge it. He had tried to show Rylan that he was trying to make the past better. He was trying to apologize but Rylan had not known it. He blamed himself for it all. This is not one of those find, mate and instant love stories. There is a bit of pain and angst in it, so when the happiness begins, the story becomes even better.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the others in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When this amazing author puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a bit of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.
